Los Angeles Clippers may invite Gilbert Arenas to training camp

When former NBA star Gilbert Arenas isn’t touting around absurd amounts of illegal fireworks, he’s apparently working on his game, at least according to Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy.

Kennedy said today that the former Arizona Wildcat has been hoping to return to the league, which he’s been out of since 2012, and he might get that chance with the Los Angeles Clippers who are apparently open to giving him an opportunity during training camp.

Per Kennedy:

I’m hearing that Gilbert Arenas has looked good in workouts this summer. The Clippers may invite him to training camp, according to sources.

Arenas, who has only played 17 NBA regular season games since the 2010-11 season (and averaged just 12 minutes in those contests) would likely find it difficult to crack the Clippers roster, assuming he was even given the opportunity.

Still, just 31, it’s possible he still has a bit of run left in him.

The three time NBA All Star would make the Clippers his fifth team, if he was able to somehow play his way onto the team – that’s again assuming he even gets an invite to training camp.
